Throwback to the days when we were known as Tower City! 
.
OUR STORY - PART 2
After Interscope Records and Tower City terminated their relationship, the band quickly showcased for Warner Brothers Records and Atco Records/Atlantic Recording Group, which lead to a major recording contract under legendary A&R rep and record executive, Derek Shulman (Def Leppard, Jon Bon Jovi and Dan Reed Network, Cinderella, Kingdom Come, Enuff Z’nuff, Dream Theater and Pantera), who had just become the President of Atco Records in 1990. AC/DC, Bad Company and Tower City were collectively terminated from Atco in 1991 due to a major overhaul at the executive level. In 1991-1992, Tower City was known as the highest paid artist in the recording industry to never get a record released, which eventually wore the band out of their relationship with their management, and the band found themselves without a recording contract for the first time in years.

Throwback to the days when we were known as Tower City! 
.
OUR STORY - PART 1
Tower City signed their first artist management contract with the legendary “Mr. Big” Don Arden (Ozzy Osborne, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Air Supply, Small Faces, The Move, Black Sabbath and Electric Light Orchestra). Soon after, they signed a recording contract with Interscope Records under legendary rock music producer Beau Hill (Alice Cooper, Kix, Winger, Warrant, Fiona, Europe and Ratt) and producer Mike Slamer (Streets, City Boy and Angry Anderson). In 1990, Tower City was Interscope’s first rock act to be launched on the start-up label. The only other acts signed to Interscope at the time were Marky Mark, Gerardo and Neverland. Six months into their record deal with Interscope, there were changes in the executive team at Interscope and Tower City was let go – free and clear – and with all their songwriters’ rights, publishing and copyrights intact.

Here's some Friday Music Humor! Have a kick ass weekend!

#TBT to 1987! Before Colorvine - even before Tower City - lead guitarist and vocalist Larry Saltis was a member of the tv/musical sitcom @newmonkees where he signed his first recording/songwriting/publishing contracts with Warner Bros Records, Columbia Music Group and Columbia Pictures at the young age of 18. The tv series lasted one season and only one album was released, but the New Monkees’ legacy has lived on for 32 years through their loyal fans from around the globe!  Thank you to all of the New Monkees fans who have supported Larry’s music since the 80s, and to the fans of both incarnations of our band throughout the decades! 🤘

Flashback to our first record in 1995! Did you know we achieved Grammy nomination status for the 38th Annual Grammy Awards? Our sound in those days has been described as Red Hot Chili Peppers meets King’s X meets Spin Doctors.

BIG NEWS: We’d like to introduce you to Kurt Reed, our new bass player! Kurt is an award winning musician from Akron Ohio. First entering the world of popular music via a record collection found in his grandfather’s attic, like many of us Kurt quickly fell in love with rock n roll through the likes of Elvis, the Beatles, and Little Richard. Kurt continued his love of music receiving his B.M. in Classical Guitar from the University of Akron in 2008. He is also the director of two music schools in Akron  operating as Trillium Schools of Music - where Reed met Larry’s son and Heath’s nephew. When the call to join Colorvine came, Kurt had already fallen in love with the new record and is so excited to share “Wake Up” with the world.

Blatantly current and instantly relatable song lyrics with a solid rock-and-roll foundation.  Progressive and retro at the same time.  I don't know if I'm listening to the past or the future. Victory Song is an ear worm (in the best kinda way). I'm hitting repeat on my player as soon as the song is over, just like I did when I was a kid.  Killer record, guys! 
Finally, a feel-good album that really rocks.  I wish today's radio stations sounded like this.
